i have in an old layout one very complex MPP that i want to modify, to delete some of subrectangles, but this is very tedious if not impossible.
My idea is to "dump" this MPP to skill code and then modify it and with this help to generate a new layout version of the MPP. It is like saving of a new generated MPP-template to a file that I can further adjust for my needs.
I have searched in the documentation about ROD-Objects but i didn't find something usefull. Does somebody have a skill script or an ideea how can be this achieved ?
There's no public API to get the MPP parameters from an existing MPP. You can find all the shapes, and you can use rodUnNameShape() to "flatten" the MPP into the individual shapes - which you can then manipulate - but you won't then make it back into an MPP again.
Thank you Andrew,
What a pity :-(
I have already seen the function rodUnNameShape() but this is useless for me.
You can recreate the MPP in the same coordinate location. For example if you have to change some layer to other / increate distance you can create a MPP having the new layer & distance. Just create the new one in the same coordinate to the old one. After that delete the old MPP.
Its is not the exact solution but it may serve the porpose to some extent.
